Looking at it from a different perspective - what if Rookies replaced PIF cards each week.
i.e. Anyone who debuted in a round has a limited release card printed.
I know personally I’d rather have a new player featured for my club than the same 9-ish repeated in every release and subset.
Great review, as always. I agree with everything you have said.
A couple of personal variations would be:
- I think that the base set should be 9 players, with logo cards as a low-end insert (whoever decides the numbers of these things obviously hasn't spent years placing cards into album...
Looking for the following:
2020 Traders Club Heroes Parallel CHP27 James Tedesco
2020 Traders Club Heroes Parallel CHP28 Sam Verrills
2020 Traders Authentic Signature AS14 Nat Butcher
2020 Traders Retirement Parallel RP14 Cooper Cronk
Looking for the Roosters from these two sets:
1999 THE COURIER MAIL/SUNDAY MAIL OFFICIAL TEAM PHOTOS - OPENED, NO ENVELOPE $2 each
1999 THE DAILY TELEGRAPH/SUNDAY TELEGRAPH OFFICIAL TEAM PHOTOS - SEALED $3 each
